Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies (TricS)


  • I do research in the area of migration, mobility and material culture. Processes of change and more specifically the translation of cultural phenomena are central in my work. I have a regional focus on China. I adopt a triangulation of methods, combining literature study woth ethnography. My esearch topics include: Chinese coffee culture, Fashion Studies (Belgian fashion, fashion in China; fashion education), Chinese migrants in Europe (Antwerp, Prato), transnational migration China-Africa, the anthropology of aesthetics.
